About Us

Nirvana Healthcare Management Services (Nirvana Healthcare) is made up of a large network of integrated practitioners, all working together to continually deliver the highest quality medical care and services to each patient. For over seventy years, our highly-skilled, compassionate providers have been committed to building long-term relationships with our patient.
Nirvana Healthcare provides primary and specialty services to communities throughout Essex County, New Jersey. In addition to developing a standard of high-quality care, Nirvana Healthcare also focuses on preserving a personalized, multispecialty team approach across all locations in Newark and East Orange, NJ.
As patient needs change, so should their physicians’ priorities. Nirvana Healthcare enables providers to produce better patient outcomes and deliver an enhanced customer experience. To achieve this goal, the organization looks at the entire clinical encounter, providing medical staff with effective processes that better equip them to deliver patient-centered care.

All providers take a proactive, preventive approach to diagnoses and treatments. They utilize healthcare report cards to track medical histories and detect when a person is at a higher risk for disease. Additionally, the providers take all insurance types to ensure more patients have access to quality health and wellness services — a feature that differentiates them from others in the sector.
History of Compassionate, Patient-Centered Primary Care
Nirvana Healthcare Management Services consists of five primary care locations where providers combine the principles of 20th– and 21st-century medicine to deliver holistic, comprehensive support. While the healthcare organization believes in maintaining a standardized patient experience for all facilities, it also recognizes that everyone has distinct medical circumstances. Each brand is unique, catering to the diverse needs of each patient. For convenience, laboratory services are available at all locations. The following organizations make up primary care:

2001 - Salerno Medical Associates
Salerno Medical Associates is a second-generation practice with over 70 years of service to patients in Newark and East Orange, NJ. Dr. Alexander G. Salerno, a leading primary care physician and internist, brings a commitment to high-quality, customized care and patient well-being to the clinic.

The providers use advanced diagnostic methods and evidence-based treatment for population health and chronic disease state management. They stress patient education and preventative care while offering community-based programs, such as the Urban Healthcare Initiative Program (UHIP) which began in 2010, to serve more people in East Orange, NJ, and the surrounding areas.
CHOP front of building
2002 - Chop
Originally called SHOP (Senior Healthcare Outreach Program), the program was launched in 2002 by Dr. Alexander G. Salerno as a return to the traditional house-call program to serve seniors in the urban community specifically. It is the longest-running program of its type in the area, providing fully integrated primary care via house calls. In 2015, the program was renamed CHOP, or Community Health Outreach Program, and expanded services to include patients with mental illness and substance use disorder — populations long underserved in these communities.

The main goal of CHOP is to make quality, affordable healthcare accessible and convenient by reaching patients in the places they reside or congregate. These locations include private homes, senior residences, group homes, adult daycare facilities, and behavioral health centers. We also strive to save patients from unnecessary disease and illness, as well as unnecessary and costly hospital visits — which burden the healthcare system, too.

2015 - Roseville Medical Society
In 2015, Dr. Alexander G. Salerno joined the staff at Roseville Medical Society in Newark, NJ to assist his father-in-law, Dr. Raouf Elias in delivering high-quality care to patients. Since Dr. Elias’ passing in 2016, Dr. Salerno and a team of talented physicians continue to care for patients as they would family members at this location, spending ample time to promote good health and wellness and overall patient satisfaction. Doctors of medicine and osteopathic medicine offer preventative care services and treat numerous conditions, from common sicknesses to chronic diseases.
